What do you enjoy most about working in FSC’s Office of Admissions?:

I have worked with elementary through high school students as a substitute teacher. Having the opportunity to assist, encourage, as well as be a mentor for students as they are guided throughout the admissions process is so rewarding. I am excited to work with my students and their families. Go Mocs!

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?:

With a three mile stretch of stunning lake views, Lake Hollingsworth is my favorite place to walk, jog, or bike!

Do you have any favorite music, books, and TV shows?:

I am a longtime fan of Taylor Swift and Adele’s music. I loved the movie Elf! I watch it every December as most do, but I could also watch it in June and be just as content.

What would be a perfect Saturday?:

A handful of ideas come to mind as to what the perfect Saturday would be. More than anything, it would be getting to sleep in. After that maybe brunch and the beach or a day at Disney! I am even good with a Target run during the day followed by some pizza for dinner which is easily my favorite food.

What about hobbies or outside interests?:

I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. Whether it be flying somewhere or a trip to somewhere a bit more local. I also love just being outside enjoying nature.

What is your favorite local restaurant?:

Cob & Pen is a great choice. I highly recommend the grilled cheese and tomato soup!

What is something surprising about you?:

I don’t run on Dunkin’!
